2017 Board Election
At InHealth Mutual, an involved and active membership is at the core of what makes InHealth Mutual great. This means engagement of members in both their personal health management, as well as the oversight and governance of the CO-OP. When members select InHealth as their health insurance provider, they also join the CO-OP as a voting member with a voice.
Make your voice heard by voting in this year's election. More information about the nomination and voting process will be posted later this summer.
